Stairway (Salmon Passage)

A small tributary on an Oregon coastal river. Last October, I watched hundreds of Coho (Silver) and Chinook (King) staged off the mouth of this small stream. Throughout the day, the fish pushed up through the rapids, their backs protruding out of the water. These fish had traveled, as young fish, up to 900 miles out in the ocean toward Alaska or closer to British Columbia. They return to their native headwaters (or the unnatural fish hatchery) spawn and then soon die right there. The cycle continues each year as fish return after 2-6 years in the ocean. A magical cycle to witness. Next year, I have vowed to spend less time catching or even watching and position myself next to the mouth of that stream and attempt to photograph the salmon as they push upward through the rapids. The water is splashed far and wide so I will eventually need to clean that lens.
